    Celebrities may not always have the most compelling arguments – but they do boast an audience. Case in point: When the Supreme Court recently sided with abortion providers, they flocked to social media to celebrate the news with millions of fans.  On June 29, the Supreme Court justices issued their ruling in June Medical Services v. Russo. The majority struck down a 2014 Louisiana law that required abortionists to obtain admitting privileges at nearby hospitals so that patients could be easily transferred for emergency care. Taking to Twitter, celebrities from Eva Longoria Baston to Alyssa Milano and Elizabeth Banks celebrated.They agreed with...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday sent two Indiana abortion disputes back to lower courts including a fight over a restriction that would require women to undergo an ultrasound procedure at least 18 hours before terminating a pregnancy. The nine justices tossed lower court rulings that blocked two Republican-backed state laws from taking effect, one of which is the ultrasound measure passed by the state legislature in 2016 and signed by Vice President Mike Pence when he was Indiana's governor before Donald Trump selected him as his running mate. The second law would require that parents be...

    The nightmare is no product of imagination.  It is real: infanticide for the purpose of organ-harvesting is real.  Madeline Osburn of The Federalist reports on shocking new video of deposition testimony under oath confirming crimes worthy of comparison to Dr. Mengele: [V]ideos of witnesses under oath show that not only did the abortion giant profit from the sale of fetal organs, but that Planned Parenthood and its business partner, Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), violated federal law that mandates a fetus born with a beating heart is a human being equally entitled to protections under the law. "Placing an order for body parts from a born...
  • One Man’s Supreme Court [Justice Roberts]

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | June 30, 2020 | The Editorial Board
    The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 Monday that a state can’t even require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a hospital. And the logic of the concurring opinion from Chief Justice John Roberts, who provided the fifth vote, suggests not even de minimis regulation of abortion will survive his Court’s scrutiny. Here’s the stunner: Four years ago a different Court majority overturned a similar Texas statute, with then Justice Anthony Kennedy joining the four liberals. Chief Justice Roberts dissented in that case. Yet on Monday the Chief joined the liberals, citing his duty to follow precedent. As the dissenters point...

    The ruling was against the Soros-backed Alliance for Open Society International. The Supreme Court issued a ruling on Monday making it clear that a major front of progressive billionaire oligarch George Soros does not have 1st Amendment rights under the U.S. Constitution. In the case of Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International, Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito, and John Roberts ruled against 1st Amendment right for the Soros front. Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissented against the majority while Justice Elena Kagan did not take part in the...

    he 2020 election will be decided in the fall by swing voters in ten or 15 states. Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, those voters were leaning to reelect President Trump, largely on the powers of incumbency and a near-record vibrant economy. The Democratic left-wing primary agendas, from the New Green Deal to reparations, the clownish candidates of the Beto O’Rourke and Corey Booker sort, the arrogance and meltdown of Mike Bloomberg, and Joe Biden’s cognitive impairment collectively frightened voters. Meanwhile, the booming economy, record energy production, record-low minority unemployment and reckoning with China had overshadowed Trump’s cul de sac tweeting,...

    What these activists fail to understand or bother to look into is Planned Parenthood's evil past. Margaret Sanger, the abortion giant's founder, believed that the worst sin in the world was bringing children into the world that "have no chance in the world of being a human." Apparently killing an innocent child isn't the greatest sin. But then again, Sanger didn't see infidelity as a sin, even though "Thou shalt not commit adultery" is one of the 10 Commandments. "I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world that have disease from their parents, have...

    The "Never Trump" coalition of Republicans fighting to oust President Trump from the White House is making a risky play, just as the president's lackluster poll numbers are raising concerns on the right -- they're going after Republican senators too. The effort is being led by The Lincoln Project, a media-savvy outfit that spends most of its time hammering the incumbent president with scathing TV and digital ads. But along with targeting Trump, The Lincoln Project is now weighing in on the races of GOP senators facing tough reelections this year. ... The spot characterizes Daines – who’s facing a...

    In an unfortunate ruling today, the Supreme Court devalued both the health of mothers and the lives of unborn children by gutting Louisiana’s policy that required all abortion procedures be performed by individuals with admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.  States have legitimate interests in regulating any medical procedure—including abortions—to protect patient safety.  Instead of valuing fundamental democratic principles, unelected Justices have intruded on the sovereign prerogatives of State governments by imposing their own policy preference in favor of abortion to override legitimate abortion safety regulations.

This researcher's information was presented in prior video and there was such public outcry, this had to be false etc., that the video channel excerpted the interview between Robert Kennedy Jr. and Dr. Theresa Deisher and presented background information to substantiate the prior video. Warning - it's so very disturbing. It really reads like a medical-ized practice of sacrificing babies to Satan.

    Washington (CNN)Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the liberal justices on the Supreme Court on Monday to block a controversial Louisiana abortion law that critics said would have closed nearly every clinic in the state. The 5-4 ruling is a win for supporters of abortion rights who argued that the law was not medically necessary and amounted to a veiled attempt to restrict abortion. The law barred doctors from performing the procedure unless they had admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. The majority opinion was penned by Justice Stephen Breyer, who wrote that the majority "consequently hold that the Louisiana...

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled Monday that Louisiana's tough restriction on abortion violates the Constitution, a surprising victory for abortion rights advocates from an increasingly conservative court. The 5-4 decision, in which Chief Justice John Roberts joined with the court's four more liberal justices, struck down a law passed by Louisiana's legislature in 2014 that required any doctor offering abortion services to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles. Its enforcement had been blocked by a protracted legal battle.

    00:00 01:16 The Supreme Court ruled in favor of protecting abortion rights in the case June v. Russo Monday. The court's opinion, led by Justice Stephen Breyer, "found that conditions on admitting privileges common to hospitals throughout the State have made and will continue to make it impossible for abortion providers to obtain conforming privileges for reasons that have nothing to do with the State’s asserted interests in promoting women’s health and safety." The case, June Medical Services v. Russo, called into question the constitutionality of a Louisiana law that mandated abortion clinics have admitting privileges in hospitals within a...

    It’s anyone’s guess as to how the Supreme Court justices will decide the current case regarding abortion. The media’s reaction, on the other hand, is an easy prediction. The Supreme Court is expected to issue its decision shortly on June Medical Services v. Russo. But as each day passes, many in the media, from The New York Times to The Cut, appear more worried that the ruling will block abortion access. The case challenges a 2014 Louisiana law that requires abortionists to obtain admitting privileges at nearby hospitals so that patients can be easily transferred for emergency care.Because admitting privileges...
